Resolutions on John Dabney Cunningham

1867-1939

WHEREAS:

John Dabney Cunningham, a direction of this, The First National Bank of Corsicana, departed this life on October 28, 1939, and it is the desire of the officers and directors of this bank, by appropriate resolution to make an appreciative record of his life;

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED:

That the officers and directors of this bank record the following brief biography of John Dabney Cunningham:

John Dabney Cunningham was born on a farm a few miles from Waxahachie, Ellis County, Texas, on October 29, 1867. His father was George H. Cunningham, a pioneer of Ellis County, who came to Texas in 1849 and in September, 1859, married Miss Tennessee Simms and to them nine children were born, John Dabney Cunningham being the third.

In 1862, George H. Cunningham entered the Civil War on the side of the Confederacy, enlisting in Company C. 19th Calvary, as a private, and was promoted to Lieutenant during duration of war. After the close of the war, he settled in Ellis County, following his profession, that of a civil engineer, often accepting land for his services, thereby accumulating much land which, with other lands purchased, made him one of the largest land owners in Ellis County.

The family moved to Waxahachie from which place John Dabney Cunningham left to attend Winchester College, Winchester, Tennessee, and after finishing there moved to Corsicana and for a short while was employed by his brother-in-law, Mr. W. M. Tatum, and later became a partner with Mr. Tatum in the hardware business.

Shortly after moving to Corsicana on September 3, 1889, he married Miss May Young, of a pioneer family near Blooming Grove, who departed this life on September 28, 1927. To them two children were born, Estill Y. Cunningham and John D. Cunningham, Jr.

On March 14, 1929, he married Mrs. Hattie Petty Miller who was born and reared in Huntsville, Alabama.

Early in life, John Dabney Cunningham became a member of the Methodist church and remained a faithful and devoted member of this church until his death. He was and had been for many years a steward in the First Methodist Church of Corsicana. He could always be found on the side of good government and morality.

He was engaged in the wholesale and retail hardware business with his brother-in-law, Mr. W. M. Tatum, for many years but retired several years ago to devote his entire attention to his farming interests.

He was elected a director of this bank on January 13, 1925, and served in this capacity until his death.

He lived simply and without ostentation. He was courteous and kind. He was honest in his dealings. He was a devoted husband and father and a loyal brother. He was a sincere friend.

After a brief illness he died at his home in Corsicana, Texas, on October 28, 1939. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Hattie Cunningham, his two sons, Estill Y. Cunningham and John D. Cunningham, Jr., his brother, Claude C. Cunningham of Corsicana, and his sisters, Mrs. W. M. Tatum of Corsicana , Mrs. G. H. Edmonson of Waxahachie, and Mrs. C. R. Wright of Waxahachie.

BE IT, THEREFORE, RESOLVED:

That the officers and directors of the First National Bank of Corsicana, wish to record their loss of a loyal friend and a valued associate in the passing of John Dabney Cunningham; and they share with his widow, sons, brothers, sisters, the many business institutions in which he was an important factor, and the large circle of friends, who admired and respected him, the loss of a husband, father, brother, friend, associate, and stalwart citizen.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED:

That this resolution be spread upon the minutes of this bank; that a copy thereof be sent to his wife and children and a copy to the press for publication.

This, the 5th day of December, 1939.

Mrs. R. E. Prince

Sad Death at Corsicana.
Corsicana, Sept. 12. - One of the saddest occurrences which has fallen in the way of The News correspondent to note took place in this city last night in the death of Mrs. R. E. Prince.  She had been sick only a few days and a fatal termination was not expected by friends until a few hours before her death.  Her mother, residing in St. Joe, Mo., had been telegraphed for and arrived at the beside of her daughter only a few minutes before her death, but in time to be recognized.  The remains, accompanied by the grief stricken mother and husband, left this morning for her former home, St. Joe, Mo., where the interment will take place.  Some affection of the heart was the cause of death.  Mr. Prince is one of the leading young attorneys of this city, and they had been married only about a year.
